The Korean War (Part I): The Forgotten War and Forgotten Lesson
The Korean War (Part I): The Forgotten War and Forgotten Lesson
The Korean War is known, ironically so, for being America's forgotten war. It was a war that sparked America's involvement in southeast Asia for next thirty years.  Part one of this series on the war begins by explaining how we got to the point of war in Korea, and the history of Korea itself.  One unique aspect of this war is that it never officially ended, and the ramifications of the events are still in place today.  A list of sources as well as maps is available on this episode's page on the official website by clicking here or visiting  To help support the podcast you can visit our Patreon page by clicking here.
